Mosaic tile work inspired this necklace in colors chosen to mimic the sea. By utilizing both transparent and opaque Japanese seed beads in two sizes, the designer added subtle textural interest to the design. Instead of increasing peyote stitches, one- and two-drop peyote is used to expand the ring uniformly. Although made in the same pattern, the rings have alternating colors and connecting them in a particular sequence adds a sense of controlled randomness and movement. The pearl clasp closure provides a seamless connection and is modeled after a ball-and-socket concept.
